A wonderful gift idea!  A variety of truffles!  FAMILY FUN MAGAZINE .

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 cups milk, white, or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon flavoring extract, such as orange or peppermint(optional)
  • Shredded coconut, cocoa powder, confectioners' sugar, or finely chopped pecans or walnuts
  1. In a small pan, heat the cream over medium heat (adults only) until it begins to gently bubble. Reduce the heat to low and add the chocolate chips, stirring constantly until completely blended and smooth.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and add the extract, if desired. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until firm, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  3. Fill small bowls with the truffle toppings. Roll the cooled chocolate into 1-inch balls, then roll each ball in a topping and place them on a plate or tray lined with waxed paper.
  4. Chill the truffles until completely firm, at least 30 minutes. For the best taste, bring the truffles to room temperature before serving.
  5. Leftovers will keep for a few days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Makes about 1 dozen.
